The Gloom

Aunt Snow has shown the June Gloom in the southern coastal region of our state.

It continues through most of the summer, although the July and August Gloom just don't rhyme as well.

I lived a block from the beach for most of my college years and never saw the sun, unless I went inland a block or two... I wasted was good those years...just a block from the street from where people fall off the balconies Del Playa and I never partied there...those were the years of amazing apathy, between the burning of the bank and the Halloween riots, but I digress..

Lately the gloom has been incredibly thick, and has threatened to spill over the coastal mountain range into my sunny valley.

Back, back, damn you.


Jason, as himself said...

Yes! Back!

Looks just like our hills here dividing the east bay valleys from the San Francisco bay! We appreciate getting the gloom rolling in overnight to cool things off, then it burns off or rolls back before noon leaving a nice temperate day.

Oh, it still comes inland for us! we are about 4-5 miles from the coast, and each morning we are socked in with fog.

Of course, since I work right AT the beach, my days are constant fog. It clears between 2 and 6.
